Remembering the 80s...

For some reason I woke up this morning thinking about summers of my childhood. Part of the summer I would spend in west Texas and some in the bayous of Louisiana. I can remember hot breakfasts every day... playing outside in the hot ass sun... etiquette lessons at Ms. Ann's house... crawfish boils... and music.

Regardless of what side of the family I was with music was always very important. I will never forget when my cousin Chris first showed me Whitney Houston's video on tv.




Oh and you can't forget Prince's 1999, Purple Rain, and my absolute favorite Under the Cherry Moon (is that on dvd yet??)





Michael was still considered to be sane and unstoppable!!





But TV was big too... I couldn't wait till Thursday nights to catch the Cosby Show





Ooooooooooh and you can't forget Eddie was at his best





And of course Grace Jones was killing it in a View to Kill

Hmmm...great post..Actually that picture of Whitney Houston is from the 90's (not that it matters). It is from her "I'm Your Baby Tonight" release which I believe (if I am correct) was from '91. But Whitney is 80's nonetheless....
